Frankenstein 1931 and Dracula 1931 are excellent resources on the plots, casts and the making of these two iconic film classics.

This book is simply spectacular. It would be impossible for a "Frankenstein" fan to not be blown away by it.

The Monsters' Almanac is awesome! It renews the belief that the classic monster films beat out any made past 1960!

Issue 4 includes:

  • Dracula AD 1972 – bringing Dracula into the modern age was a brave move for Hammer, and we think it’s high time this vampire romp received the closer look it deserves.
  • Horror make-up – greasepaint, animal hair and painful prosthetics are just the beginning, in our special feature on the techniques used by the make-up masters of the horror movie world.
  • Lon Chaney – the Man of the Thousand Faces was a creative powerhouse responsible for some of horror cinema’s most enduring images, and our biography examines his extraordinary legacy.
  • Young Frankenstein – Mel Brooks’ loving 1974 tribute to Universal’s golden age is worthy of respect in its own right. We rediscover the many facets of this sparkling movie.
  • Monkey business – why are there so many apes in horror movies? We peel a couple of bananas and sit back to enjoy the very best in simian scares.
  • And much more besides!

The fourth issue of Classic Monsters of the Movies is filled with articles which explore the world of vintage horror cinema in new ways. With the first-class journalism and beautiful stills you’ve come to expect, it’s the perfect way to reawaken your nostalgic memories of yesteryear, whilst discovering something new along the way.

Classic Monsters of the Movies issue 4 features superlative cover artwork by horror art legend Daniel Horne, while the articles continue our foray into the people, places, movies and – above all – the magic of classic horror. If you’ve enjoyed our previous issues, you’ll love this one… and if you haven’t read them yet, there’s no time to lose!

    Like Famous Monsters of Filmland from the 60s only 100 times better!

  2. 5 out of 5

    Received my issue 4 today – fantastic! Just subscribed for issues 5 to 8 – keep up the good work. I love the mix of the US & UK horror as well as the features on all those great character actors… Keep those specials coming as well….

    Keep it up, your work is beyond sterling. Thanks for everything so far with CMoM – stunning work 🙂

    Your magazine is outstanding. The writing, the photos…all of it!

    Just want to say what a fantastic fabulous job you guys have done on these mags very professional indeed. Keep up the fantastic work.

  6. 5 out of 5

    I happily now have the first four issues and all the guides. Take it from someone who always prided themselves on delivering a top-notch presentation of photos and in-depth articles over our 20 plus year run (I’m the Editor/Publisher of MONSTERS FROM THE VAULT) when I say you won’t find a better looking magazine being published today, period! I’m even envious of your use of color and the high quality paper and printing. It’s also GREAT to see the very talented Daniel Horne’s art appearing in the cover of a classic monster magazine. Daniel’s paintings were featured on the cover of eight issues of MFTV. CLASSIC MONSTERS OF THE MOVIES gets MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! This publication is a perfect replacement for FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND 3.0 (now that they’re changing direction) and MONSTERS FROM THE VAULT now that we’re ceasing publication after one final issue to be published later this year. Best of luck to all involved and I look forward to many more issues!

    FINALLY received my copy of issue #4. Long but worthwhile wait!. Great issue (again) but I really must take you task on Dracula 1972 AD. Don’t know what you were smoking as you watched/reviewed, but the movie was a dog. Great article on one of my favorite Hammers, Paranoic. Great photos and artwork

  8. 4 out of 5

    Finally received issue #4 (worth the wait). As always the layouts and photos are greatly well done. How about covering some of the lesser known/shown classics such as Devil Girl from Mars and the Man From Planet X?
    Again, keep up the good work and don’t slow down. When will you be starting a letters from the readers section?

  9. 5 out of 5

    The magazine just keeps getting better and better. The layout and image reproduction is first class. The great thing about this magazine is that it is filled just with brilliant articles, images and film posters and stands out from anything else on the market past or present and it would be a backward step in my opinion to include a letters from the readers section or pages of adverts. This is just a waste of space. There are plenty of social media outlets for readers to have their say without printing any of these in the magazine. You are doing just fine as you are. Please don’t change.

    Really enjoy the magazine a lot, as well as the guides.

    Thank you for putting out such an amazing, and unbelievably reasonably-priced yet very high quality zine.

    I purchased issues 1-4. Brilliant magazine. I enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed reading House of Hammer which I collected in the 1970s.

    Thanks so much for the Dreaming of Nightmares Guide, I also received the Ultimate Guide to Dracula last week, I really look forward to the superb writing, and beautiful presentations of these magazines and Ultimate Guides. well done to Nige Burton, and Jamie Jones, and all the other people involved in this amazing publication of Classic Monsters of the Movies.

    I look forward to receiving Dracula Prince of Darkness, and Classic Monsters, issue number 5. I ordered The Mummy last week, I am really looking forward to that as well. Thanks once again, for producing a magazine, that is of very high quality, and presented to such a high standard that the fans enjoy. I mention this magazine to lots of people, and I get overwhelmed by the quality, and enthusiasm involved by the authors.

    I can’t wait for more Classic Monsters of the Movies.

    Hi there, just want to say these mags are class, best I’ve seen in a long time. I have them next to Dez Skinn’s House of Hammer in my collection. You should have a page for folk to leave feedback and see some great comments left no doubt. Keep up the high standards as they are fantastic.

    As a charter subscriber, I must tell you how happy I am with all of your publications. I buy every issue, every book you release. My collection is growing!

    I just received issue 5 and it is fantastic. I ordered three new DVDs based on the articles in it. The format, paper, clarity, writing, photographs and content are the best anywhere. Classic Monsters has no equal!

    Thanks for keeping the high quality you began with. It is the most important thing there is.
